Work and life transition has been a central theme to the Nel’s career, having worked in social work, newcomer settlement, trauma - newcomer, military and forensic related - and career counselling sectors.

A highly collaborative and professional therapist, Nel works to foster a sense of self-agency and forward movement in her clients. She approaches her practice as theoretically grounded in Cognitive-Behavioral Theory (CBT), Solution focused theory (SFBT) and is Attachment oriented with a focus on practical application of therapy into life. These theories speak to her understanding of the therapeutic process that is goal focused, participatory, and non-judgmental and where the whole person is appreciated.
